About

Everything you wanted to know about the Awards.

Our Story

The Funny Women Awards were created in 2003, and have become the leading platform for so many talented female performers, writers, creators and short film makers. The Awards are the ‘beating heart’ of Funny Women where our mission is to encourage women to have a stronger, funnier and memorable voice across media, business and beyond.

We’re here to help you celebrate and promote your talent. We aim to put you in front of the right people to progress your comedy career and provide mentorship and support.

Past Winners

We’ve had the great pleasure of seeing some of the greatest new female comedy acts begin their careers by taking part in the Funny Women Awards. 

So many of our alumni have gone on to do amazing things, and become household names. We couldn’t be more proud. 

We catch up with our Awards alumni whenever we can, which you can read about on our magazine pages.
